Guide us in your godly way,
Give us strength to hold at bay
Temptations, darkened thoughts of wrong,
Of self, of places we don’t belong.
Save from Satan’s schemes and wiles,
Steel us for our hardest trials,
Put in our hearts your glorious song,
Let praise be yours both loud and long.
No earthly joy let supercede
Your presence, word, and every deed;
If I do not remember you,
Freeze my tongue — my breath take, too.
